    I shot my first roll of the new Porta 160NC. I haven't shot color neg film in many years, only E-6 which I've been taking to Carl's Darkroom (I think he only does E-6). Who does 120 C-41 around here? Do minilabs typically have the ability to run this? I just need it developed, I will take care of the printing later.

    Technically, any C-41 minilab can develop C-41. Many cannot print it though, since that requires carriers for the film size. Don't take it to the drugstore, though. Any roll of film that doesn't require a can opener to open will befuddle them. Any camera store with a minilab should be able to handle a develop only for you.

    Try Albuquerque Color Lab on the corner of Comanche and San Mateo, or Picture Perfect on the corner of Menaul and Juan Tabo. I have used both and they do a good job with c-41.
